With so many amazing artisan products on the market these days, it can be both easy and overwhelming to pull together the perfect gift. Looking for a scented candle that goes beyond Yankee? Perfect, there are hundreds of options! So many of which are carefully crafted with hip branding, intriguing scents, and gorgeous packaging.
Therein lies both the positive and the negative. There are just so many awesome options that unless you have unlimited time and willingness to search, you need someone to curate your celebrations for you.
MODERN GIFT GIVING
I really do love hunting for interesting new items from local brands, but sometimes I just don’t have the time to make it to Union Market and an occasion is rapidly approaching. This is why I was so excited to discover Knack. Sourcing products from artisan makers across the country, Knack pulls together custom gift sets for every occasion and gives you the opportunity to add and remove items.
WHO IS KNACK FOR?
Whether you’re looking for a hostess gift, a bridesmaid gift, a baby gift, or a graduation gift, there’s something for everyone. You can search by occasion or recipient — there is a picnic with pinot gift set for the wine lover or a set of spa gifts for the friend that’s always looking for a bit of relaxation and self care. Hey, there’s even the bad breakup gift set titled “F*ck It Breakup Care Kit.”
From champagne to bath products to luxurious robes and notebooks, from leather goods to craft cocktail mixes and cheese boards, if you don’t see a gift set that already fits your needs, you can easily pull together an impressive box of goodies just by perusing the categories on Knack’s website. There’s a carefully curated selection that makes pulling together the perfect present easy.
Knack sends their gift sets beautifully packaged in a sturdy box wrapped in a turquoise ribbon with turquoise tissue paper. As on point as their merchants’ branding is, theirs is right on par. It’s the kind of gift that whether you send it directly to the recipient or order it yourself and just take it to the shower or housewarming, you just know that something special is hiding inside. So, head on over to Knack and find an occasion to celebrate!
AND, OF COURSE, MY LOOK
Curious about my outfit? The leopard print sweater is one of my all season favorites from J.Crew Factory, my nails are Bubble Bath from OPI, the jeans are from Everlane, and the earrings are a wonderfully versatile earring from DC jewelry designer Mallory Shelter.
